plague infests this land
failed to understand
the strength it contains
corrupting our brains
turning the conscience

here the virus thrives
nothing else survives
sounds of distant cries
echo though the skies
a new order will rise soon

and when the smoke clears
who will be left standing?

latch onto the skin
clawing deeper in
fervent insects swarm
to all the warm
corpses left floating

must wade through the mire
skyline set afire
the smoke rolling in
the choking begins
breathing this poison

but when the smoke clears
who will be left standing?

overcome with such remorse and shame
and heaven knows we only have ourselves to blame
but it is hell that stakes claim to our condemned souls
for mortal sins committed, no we can't atone for this

even though we've washed away the stains
somehow still the memories remain
i still feel it pulsing through my veins
and i know inside you feel the same
